My ex husband and I have had problems for the last year, he slowly distanced himself from me and his child. During the separation and the divorce he became less involved with his son. The last five months being the worst. He almost never sees him or calls him. I have begged, pleaded for him to remember to call and trying to tell him the damage and pain this is causing his kid. He says sorry and has excuses and makes promises says he loves him deeply but no action. What do I do? I am tired of begging and stressing about what he should do. What should I say to my son, who thinks his dad is not coming because he is sick or working but lets be honest you can make time for your kids. What do I say to my son. He is in so much pain from having a loving father everyday to now nothing, he is 13. Is this something a lot of men do in the beginning? Will he come around? Please helpAnswer Question
